San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee is denying reports that he's in the running to become the next U.S. ambassador to China.

Lee, who is in China now on a trade mission, is said to be in line to replace Ambassador Gary Locke, who announced this week that he'll be leaving the post.

But according to a spokesperson for the mayor, Lee has no interest in becoming an ambassador and has not been approached about taking the job.
